Rotary Club of Meaford received its charter in 1937, having been sponsored by the Owen Sound club, there were 20 members. Now the Meaford Rotary club has 25 members to help with the many projects locally and internationally that we support for the good of the respective communities.
The Scarecrow Stringer asked Carol Norton, President of the Meaford Rotary Club about their support of the Scarecrow Invasion.
“Rotary sponsors the invasion as we all feel it is a great event for the municipality. It brings everyone out, kids of all ages. No matter what the weather is we still get a great turn out. When you look around the crowd all you see is everyone participating and having fun – it is just a great event and I know it is the favourite event of the year for many people.
“The Scarecrow Invasion has become very well known around the county and is good for the image of Meaford. There are many people who work hard to make this event the success that it has become and Rotary is proud to be a sponsor.”
Thank You, Meaford Rotary Club for your Support
